Developmental instability and phenotypic evolution in a small and isolated bear population.

Biol Lett 2021 04 21;17(4):20200729. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Research Institute on Terrestrial Ecosystems, National Research Council, 00015 Montelibretti, Rome, Italy.

We explored fluctuating asymmetry (FA) and morphological integration (MI) in the skull of the small, highly inbred and divergent Apennine bear (), to explore its uniqueness and investigate any potential effects of inbreeding depression. We used 3D geometric morphometrics contrasting Apennine bears with other two large outbred bear populations from Scandinavia and Kamchatka as controls. Shape divergence and variability were explored by a principal component analysis on aligned coordinates of 39 landmarks. Read More

Little is known about the evolutionary history of Helix, despite the fact that it includes the largest land snails in the western Palaearctic, some of which (e.g. H. Read More
